March 24, 2020

COVID-19 is here, and the only thing we can do now is practice proper hygiene and practice social distancing. A majority of places all around the US have closed, and people are being asked to stay indoors and away from others as much as possible. You may find yourself going stir crazy while you’re inside and can’t go out to eat or go to a museum, but there are still some fun things that you can do at home to keep yourself occupied during the shutdowns.

Exercise

There has never been a better time to put that gym equipment you bought to good use. It’s good to not be sedentary while you’re at home to get the dumbbells or the treadmill out and get to work. If you don’t have any equipment, there are tons of tutorials online on how to work out without any equipment. There’s no better time than the present.

Catch Up on Your Shows

Streaming was a big part of our lives before the outbreaks, and now it feels as though it’s essential to our sanity. There’s an overabundance of amazing TV streaming right now. There’s never been a better time for you to gather around the tv and catch up on a show you’ve been meaning to watch or find something entirely new and unexpected.

Play Video Games

If you’re not a gamer, but you have kids, then it’s likely they do game. Get involved with them and use it as a time to bond as a family. There are a variety of games on your phone or party games that can be fun for the entire house. Let a game either keep the whole family occupied or take you to a new and exciting world while you’re in your living room.

Take A Virtual Tour

There are many museums, zoos, and aquariums that are providing free virtual tours for people stuck at home with nothing to do. All you need is an internet connection to see the animals enjoying themselves or to learn more about our history. The Georgia Aquarium is a great example of what we’re talking about. Go on an adventure from the comfort of your home. 

Play Board Games

You’re likely not in your home by yourself; either you have roommates, family, or your S.O with you, and that’s when you can all gather around and either play an old classic, or you can learn a new game that you’ve meant to get around to learning.

Take Up A New Hobby 

There are all kinds of hobbies and skills that you can learn from home. It’s up to you to find one that suits you. Maybe you’ve meant to learn sewing or painting. Now is a great time to buckle down and learn the skills that it takes to enjoy your new hobby.

Take An Online Course
